HU-FRIEDY: Pioneering Innovation with most Sophisticated Solution for Instrument Management

Innovative Infinity Series Cassettes designed for enhanced safety
and maximized efficiency in the dental office

Cologne, 10th March 2015 – Hu-Friedy, a global leader in the manufacturing of dental instruments and products, introduces the full line of next generation of Instrument Management with its new IMS Infinity Series Cassettes and IMS Collection Kits designed for the most effective instrument processing and infection control.

Proper infection prevention is a top priority in dentistry. Hu-Friedycontinues to lead the industry through innovation of dental instrumentmanagement systems that ensure better infection prevention whilemaximizing efficiency and ROI for the dental practice.

Capitalizing on 30 years of success in instrument management andinfection prevention, Hu-Friedy developed the new IMS Infinity SeriesCassettes to support the evolving instrument processing guidelines, and toincrease dental practice efficiency while protecting patients, staff andinstrument investments.

The IMS Infinity Series Cassettes are made from high quality,electropolished stainless steel which is more durable and less prone tobreakage or warping. Hu-Friedy redesigned three key features of thecassettes to support the standards for instrument cleaning and handling:

  • A modern hole pattern with around 30 percent additional open area promotes increased water flow throughout the cassette. It ismore compatible with all cleaning equipment, including automatedwashers.

  • An innovative silicone rail design reduces instrument contactallowing for more access to instruments while holding them safelyin place. These are available in eleven different colors, simplifyingthe identification of the cassettes.

  • A user-intuitive latch design for a more comfortable, ergonomicgrasp and single-hand opening. Users can tell at a glance if thecassette is locked or unlocked.

Featuring contemporary design and functionality, the IMS Infinity SeriesCassettes were selected as a finalist in the 2014 Medical DesignExcellence Awards®, the Medical Technology industry's premier designcompetition recognising innovation in medical device design.The prevailing dental industry experts recommend instrumentmanagement systems involving cassettes because they minimize handlingduring the cleaning and sterilisation process. Reduced handling increasessafety for dental staff and patients, and saves an average of 5-10 minutesper procedure.

It is critically important that dental practices adhere to the evolvingstandards and protocols of infection prevention and incorporate the mosteffective instrument sterilisation techniques. Even with the advancementsin instrument management, it is known that many dental practices (it isestimated more than 87,000 only in U.S.) continue to use manualinstrument sterilisation and processing methods. These manual methodsof cleaning and storing dental instruments may meet the minimum industrysafety criteria, but are time-consuming and have an increased potential forhuman error.

Hu-Friedy’s Instrument Management System (IMS) is a complete solutionthat provides a safer, faster and more efficient way to process andorganise instruments. IMS combines sterilisation, storage and organisationin one integrated cassette system. By standardising instrumentmanagement from cleaning to chairside, dental practitioners generatemore time and revenue while extending the useful life of their valuableinstruments.

The Infinity Series Collection features a compilation of clinicians most popularprocedural set-ups, such as Exam kits, Surgical Implant & Sinus Lift Kit,Rubber Dam Kit.
